Anushka Sharma, who began filming for Chakda Xpress this week in Mumbai, recently told Mid Day that it feels like her first film again. The production is noteworthy for the actor as she is returning to films after becoming a mother. More notably, it chronicles former Indian women's cricket captain Jhulan Goswami's illustrious career, highlighting women's hardships in the sport.

Sharma is pleased to have discovered a film she truly believes in three and a half years after the release of Zero (2018). The actor explained to the tabloid that, unfortunately, the pandemic prevented her from returning to the movies, despite her eagerness to begin filming.

Sharma began her preparation for the Netflix feature in February, when she went to the pitch to learn Goswami's bowling approach. She revealed that a film of this magnitude necessitated extensive preparation across the board. She describes the script as a lovely story that wants to make big remarks. Following the completion of the Mumbai leg, the team will go to the United Kingdom for a lengthy tour next month.

The story honours Goswami's tenacity, as she went on to set the record for the most wickets taken by a woman in an international cricket career. The biopic is one of the most important films in the actor's career. 

Sharma explained that it is a fact that in the patriarchal environment, women must go the additional mile to earn their place. Jhulan Goswami's life is proof that she made her own path and fought for every inch of attention and acclaim she deserved. The actor is hoping she can do the script justice.

Clean Slate Filmz was co-founded by the actor and her brother, Karnesh Ssharma. However, the actor stepped down from the official duties as a producer to focus more on being an actor.
